Re: How to find door chime transformer
I agree, though you don't even need a tester to test the button location, just disconnect the button and tap the wires together, if the bell rings every time you tap the wire, the problem is likely a faulty button which is about $5 to replace yourself. No crawling necessary, no electrician necessary. I've come across many instances where it was the button that was at fault, not the rest of the system.

I'm not a fan of wireless chimes, as they don't seem to last very long, but they are an inexpensive alternative to hiring someone to run a new hard wired chime for you.
